Childbirth is an amazing gift. You bring a new baby into the world and get to indulge in the many joys of raising a child. However, childbirth does cause many changes in the female body. Learn more about the effects of childbirth and how you can recover.
The Effects of Childbirth on Women
One of the first effects of childbirth women notice is weight gain. During after birth recovery, your belly does not return to its normal size immediately. Many women claim they still look like they’re pregnant even after delivery. Part of the healing process after birth is your stomach getting back to normal. To help this process, exercise and a healthy diet are a must after delivery. Core exercises that focus on the belly are good, but make sure you have consulted your doctor about exercise safety first.
During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes in the female body, including feet swelling. Women gain between 25-35 pounds during pregnancy, and this can put a lot of pressure on the feet. Some women even lose the arch of their feet, and they become flattened. Many women see a change in their shoe size after pregnancy, but this is just a great excuse to go shopping for new shoes!
When a woman is pregnant, she may notice her breasts swell, especially when her milk comes in. However, after delivery and after a woman stops breastfeeding, she may notice a drop in her cup size. Breasts even sag after pregnancy.
More changes in the female body that are sometimes overlooked is hair loss. Pregnancy and all the increased hormones cause fuller, shinier hair. However, after delivery, women’s hair goes back to normal, causing them to lose more hair than normal. Fortunately, your body’s hormones will eventually even out, causing your hair to return to normal after 6-12 months.
One of the biggest effects of childbirth is a drop in sex drive. With all the changes your body goes through, you may see a decline in your confidence. You may often be tired because you’re focusing your energy on your family; you may not have time to prioritize sex. Also, changes in estrogen levels can affect your libido.
Your hormones will eventually even out again after delivery. Luckily, in the meantime, you can get the FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation procedure to help improve your postpartum sex life. The easy and painless procedure invigorates the tissue in the vaginal canal and can improve a woman’s sexual feeling.
